my first PC in 7 years

Hey guys, so i am planing to build a computer for my nephew.

 

What i planned was :

 

AMD Radeon R9 270X MSI GAMING 2G GDDR5

Intel Haswell i5 4670k

Msi z97-g45 gaming -250 P

DDR3 2x4GB 2400MHz Kingston HyperX CL11

HDD SATA3 7200 1TB WD Blue

 Serian raidmax Mid size case

530W Thermaltake Smart SE SPS-530M

SSD SATA3 120GB Samsung 840 EVO 540/410MB/s

 

 

So since i am stuck on old call of duties , counter strikes and CC generals, and my nephew likes games like LoL, Minecraft and battlefield , will this be enough for normal gaming?

Also if anyone can tell me if there is a possibility for bottleneck in some of these components i would apreciate it.

 

Also monitor he will use, is his old one for now, wich is Samsung 2032 WB so for now he will max at 1680×1050 in terms of his games.

You can buy a cheaper Z87 board.

 

There is no big difference between Z87 and Z97 and the refresh is just probably better temps (it only depends on your luck).

 

The rest is good.

I'd suggest going with an i5 4690K instead of a 4670K if you are getting a z97 mobo, otherwise get a z87 mobo.

 

overall it should do fine, though I would highly suggest swapping that PSU out for one from Corsair, EVGA, Silverstone, or Seasonic, in my rig I use the Corsair CX600M and its a great power supply.

Specs: CPU - Intel i7 8700K @ 5GHz | GPU - Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming | Motherboard - ASUS Strix Z370-G WIFI AC | RAM - XPG Gammix DDR4-3000MHz 32GB (2x16GB) | Main Drive - Samsung 850 Evo 500GB M.2 | Other Drives - 7TB/3 Drives | CPU Cooler - Corsair H100i Pro | Case - Fractal Design Define C Mini TG | Power Supply - EVGA G3 850W

Pretty sure it won't, but if it does it will most likely require a bios update.

I know that.

 

I don't think it's practical for his nephew to upgrade in such a short time.

Hi, since you didnt mentionet your budget I cant help you much but this should last you for quite long.

Feel free to cut price on GPU if you wish. CPU I suggested is better than 4670k/4690k if you dont plan on overclocking. It is equivalent to i7.

And remember to quote us so that we get a notification.  

Sorry Bubblewhale.

 

Budget is around 750 euros, and here in Bosnia, that's about it really, offer is low and prices are quite high.

 

I'll look into 4690K , and see if it breaks a budget too much

Well I am pretty sure he will eventually start that, adding new coolers and stuff. I planned to give him that option if he chooses to do so , wich i am pretty sure he might try in the following months.

So in general Corsair has better PSU then thermaltake? It just has to be modular really and reliable , im a sucker for modular

 

I'd suggest going with an i5 4690K instead of a 4670K if you are getting a z97 mobo, otherwise get a z87 mobo.

Thermaltake is crap. Not as bad as Diablotek but it's like OEM grade, like Delta PSU's.
